Boucherie and Borghi – Our History

We all have our time-machines.
Some take us back, they’re called memories.
Some take us forward, they’re called dreams.

Boucherie and Borghi design, manufacture and install brush making machines worldwide. The Boucherie Borghi Group offers technology for every brush maker, in any part of the world, for all kinds of projects, for all budgets. We provide all brush manufacturers the right solution for their needs, helping steady growth, offering safe investments and providing reliable support.

Since the merger in May 2014, the Boucherie Borghi Group boasts 156 years of combined experience with 485 employees working in the Italian and Belgian headquarters, as well as in the 9 subsidiaries in 7 countries.

What the Boucherie Borghi Group represents today is the result of the single histories of the two companies. Our unique heritage shapes the way we do business today.

Follow our timeline to find out more about our history that now crosses three centuries.

The Boucherie Borghi Group

The beginning of May 2014 saw the advent of the Boucherie Borghi Group, bringing together two of the world’s major manufacturers of brush-making equipment.  The announcement of the merger of both companies was certainly a historical event of grand scale for brush industry.

“This is not at all the result of big strategic study prepared by some consultant, but rather the result of some reflections of two colleagues who, in their hearts and their thoughts, like to build machinery for their customers in the brush industry. And these reflections led to the conclusion that a smart combination of both our entities creates tremendous potential for both our companies, our employees and of course our customers.  To be frank, after the very first meeting Bart and I knew we wanted to do this.  And if you ask me why, well, the answer is: Because we want this. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for both of us.” Enzo Ferrari, President of Borghi spa, said.

Each entity will keep its own identity and will keep using its own name, but always with a link to the Boucherie-Borghi Group, to which both companies belong.

The sales force and business managers of Borghi Spa and Boucherie all meet on a regular basis: sales events in Rimini and in Izegem brought area sales managers and their agents from all over the world together to meet and discuss both experiences from the past, plans for the future as well as knowledge about trends in the market.

Also, on May 8th, 2015, the V-Air company of Todtnau, Germany, joined the Boucherie Borghi Group. 
V-Air Maschinenbau GmbH was founded in 2013 and specializes in tuft picking systems based on vacuum technology for use in e.g. anchorless toothbrush equipment. With the addition of the expertise and capabilities of V-Air, the program of the Boucherie-Borghi Group is further extended.
In April 2016 the Boucherie Borghi Group participated in the 12th edition of InterBrush, the most important fair of the brush industry.

InterBrush 2016, not only represented the first edition in which Borghi spa and GB Boucherie N.V. participated as a group in a single stand, but also it was (for us) the best edition ever, proving to be a real success in terms of the opportunity not just to meet with clients or to get to know new friends, but to strengthen the company's internal bonds as well. In the booth it was possible to feel the friendly and welcoming atmosphere together with revolutionary innovations and new developments in terms of technology and machinery for all sectors of the brush industry.  Existing machine lines were improved and refined, but the newly introduced Giotto for the technical brush makers, featuring a triple fibrebox with an automatic fibre loading system, very high productivity and a filling controlled by servomotors was definitely a highlight. For the oral care industry, the revolutionary PTt machine was unveiled. This machine uses a completely new brush manufacturing technology, which offers a range of new options to brush designers, and with substantial advantages for both product quality as well as manufacturing [PTt is the winner of the 2016 FEIBP Innovation Award]. The Ovale is also a new development; this double header for the production of household brushes has continuously running filling tools, no indexing time on most brush models, an electronic trimming station and a handle feeder with automatic orientation feature.

To “crown” symbolically the success of the fair, the Boucherie Borghi Group received from Messe Freiburg and Brushwork Magazine the Award for "Most Impressive Booth". Surely those who had the opportunity to visit the booth will have noticed the entrance wall with the names of all those who form the Boucherie Borghi Group and the phrase "We Are One”. Borghi and Boucherie are two technology companies that came together, but first of all they are made up of people, thanks to whom a real group spirit was born. Working together to achieve the same goals… because "We Are One". 
The many businesses that have joined Borghi and Boucherie since then have contributed to our rich heritage and shaped the personality of our business today. Although we have come a long way from these humble beginnings to become the international business we are now, the commitment of our people to our customers, the quality of our service and our spirit of innovation remain a constant and ongoing feature of our development.

Happy 100th Anniversary ABMA!

For over 30 years, Boucherie and Borghi have been proud members of the ABMA!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Orlando, March 22-25, 2017.
